Experience

The first 2 years of my implant were a breeze and I recommended it to everyone however I started to have month long periods which was exhausting . Then got a new one – same thing – came off all contraception and I can now get through the day without a nap and stay up past 9pm!

Feel so much better !! I can now track my cycle to see whether it’s normal or not I feel I have more control over my body and understanding of it which helps me predict pms symptoms which I like
